Author Biography

I am Delores Henriques, and as far back as I can remember, I wanted to be an Educator. I began my teaching career in Jamaica at age 21. When I migrated to the United States, I continued the same path

My Education on this journey includes a Bachelors' Degree in Education from the University of the West Indies, a Masters' in Education from the American InterContinental University, and my Education Specialist Degree (Ed.S) in Early Childhood Education from North Central University.
My philosophy "every child can learn" has given me the firm conviction to support the individual needs of every child every day.

My Second Book: Bridging the Gap- Parents' Guide for Struggling Learners in Elementary Schools is my second book.
As a teacher, I have seen first-hand that the struggling learner has become a part of the framework of our education system.

My Third Book: I Love the Trees
The environment has become a hot topic in many communities. So, I wrote I Love the Trees to help children learn about trees and their impact on the environment. Students will also learn how to contribute to the preservation of the environment.

I love watching movies, writing, reading and gardening. I have two grown children and six grandchildren. I also enjoy quiet evenings relaxing at home.

I love the Trees by Delores Henriques is a children's action and picture story. Trees are one of the most important aspects of our lives but too many people fail to see the benefits they offer. Farmer Jones has gotten together with a First Grade class and their teacher to celebrate Earth Day. This year, Famer Jones wants to do something special so he decides to help the class plant four different types of trees. He teaches them how to do it properly and then finishes by asking the children what kind of tree they would be and why. The students all agree that Earth Day should be celebrated every day, not just once a year.

I Love the Trees by Delores Henriques is a wonderful storybook with amazing illustrations that help bring the story to life. This isn’t just a kids' book; it teaches anyone who reads it how important trees are to the planet and to life and even gives proper instructions on how to plant a tree - no excuses now! It's a detailed story written in plain language that makes it easy to understand and follow, and the illustrations help make it even easier. At the end is a questionnaire to test the readers' knowledge of trees and a list of sight words used in the book. This is a fun story but highly educational too, and more than a few adults could probably benefit from it! Stories like this should be made a compulsory part of the school curriculum, encouraging both teachers and kids to get out and plant trees to help save the planet and reverse some of the damage already done. Great book, highly recommended.

Trees have a purpose in our environment. We should always make sure that there are enough trees to fulfill this purpose to keep nature balanced. I Love the Trees, written by Delores Henriques and illustrated by Jebb Impok, is about Earth Day, teamwork, the importance of trees, and the steps that it takes to plant and cultivate them. Mr. Rogers split his First Grade Class into four groups to begin the task of tree planting on the playground when they met Farmer Jones. Your child will learn the benefits of trees from Farmer Jones as he educates children about trees and the gift that they give to the world. Trees provide shade, food, and oxygen. Also, your child will learn how to correctly plant a tree to help save Earth.

I Love the Trees by Delores Henriques is an ideal children's picture book to help them better understand the world around them and what it takes to do their part to help save the world. Trees are an important part of the ecosystem and are greatly influenced by climate change. Without trees, we will all suffer. Trees improve the air quality, help regulate the temperature, minimize land erosion, decrease noise pollution, and stimulate plants and wildlife. There are different activities and sight words associated with the story to help improve your child's vocabulary and cognitive skills. Get your copy of this book so your child can learn to appreciate the importance of Mother Nature, particularly the trees. Highly recommended.

Trees are majestic. Trees can be beautiful. Trees are an important part of the earth's ecosystem. In I Love The Trees, Delores Henriques shares lots of information about the value of trees. A first-grade class is celebrating Earth Day by planting trees. Their teacher, Mr. Rogers, and Farmer Jones instruct the children on the steps they need to follow to successfully plant a tree. Each group of children plants a different type of tree. Then to extend the lesson, Mr. Rogers asks them to answer his question about what type of tree they would like to be. There is a list of sight words at the end of the book as well as a series of questions to test the reader's knowledge.

As a former children's librarian, I would often be asked for Earth Day or Arbor Day books for younger children. Delores Henriques' I Love The Trees would have been very popular, especially with groups that planned on planting trees as an Earth Day activity. Henriques encourages readers to think about the value trees provide in our world. It is empowering for kids to realize that their actions can help make the world a better place. The illustrations by Jebb Impok depict a diverse classroom and are bright and cheerful. The opening picture identifies the various parts of a tree concisely. I Love The Trees will be appreciated by teachers looking for a kid-friendly book on Earth Day and trees. As one of the students in the book states, "We can celebrate our environment every day!"

Today is a big day for Mr. Rogers and his First Grade class. It is Earth Day, and the children will plant trees with Farmer Jones. Divided into four groups, the children will plant Pine trees, Dogwood trees, Elm trees, and Apple trees. Furthermore, they will also have to answer Mr. Rogers' question as to what kind of tree they would like to be. What will the children say? You will know if you read I Love the Trees by Delores Henriques. After you finish the story, you can also do the activity at the end of the book to find out what you know about trees.

Our attention to the environment has increased in recent years, and I am convinced that it is essential to involve children in activities that raise their awareness of how important it is to protect nature. I Love The Trees is a book that young readers will love because they will find represented here a group of children doing something good for the Earth (and all of us). However, I am sure adults will appreciate this book, too, and I suggest they use it as an inspiration. Delores Henriques tells the story of a class planting trees to celebrate Earth Day; why not do the same thing with your children or class as soon as possible? It is time to do something for our Earth, and books like I Love The Trees teach us how to make our contribution to this cause. I recommend it to all children and adults around them.
